Ol' Hawkeye's words are fading out not because of poor scanner skills, but rather because he's being pulled back to his own comfy universe following the defeat of Krona. Just in time, too...I think there was a spatula reference coming up.

It only goes to any universe, Hawkeye's gonna say something that'll make you feel uncomfortable.

Oh Clint, you are SUCH an ass. It's a good thing you're entertaining.

Looks like Flash really stuck a potato up Krona's tailpipe!

...Dang, now I'm doin' it.

Mister Clint Barton was always ten times funnier than that army doctor.

Hawkeye rules! He's a trash-talking, skirt-chasing, reformed criminal turned professional hero. He was thirty years before his time!

No more chubby ninja!

I want Hawkeye! I want Hawkeye ten feet tall!

Hawkeye must be a master of disguise, because every time I go to a party, I get stuck talking to him, and he looks like a totally different person.

I'd just like to say that a Google image search for eggbeater gym shorts results in:
#1 A plate of brocolli and
#2 A jar of Chafe-Ease

Secret coded slang so impenatrable, even he can't understand it.
